This is a good episode except there's hardly any payoff. It builds up to a basically inevitable end but there's technically no resolution. I assume this is because their budget was obviously very low and they couldn't afford any special effects to show much of anything. Still, for early tv they didn't do a bad job.

The Children"s Room - ToT
This is the best of the series for me. The delightful Una O'Connor has a chilling roll in this.
There is something very frightening about children with unlimited power. It is because they are unable to recognize the consequnces of their actions. For example, three year old can be sweet as can be when things are going the child's way... but, cross them, tell them "no" when they do not want to hear it and if that child had the power, the child would kill you and not blink an eye. When frightened that same child would go running for the parent he wished dead just a minute before.
A scary thought to have children that you have no control over.
Very good episode.
